CYCLING | 3 GREAT PLACES FOR PARENTS TO GO CYCLING WITH THEIR CHILDREN
On holidays and weekends, cycling with your children is great for fun family time.
There are several bicycle parks that provide a safe environment for cycling practice in Hong Kong.
Better yet, some offer bicycle rental services, making them extremely convenient.
Here are 3 of the major cycling parks:
1. Kowloon Bay Park
One of the best bicycle parks is Kowloon Bay Park. Because it is not in the heart of the city, fewer people go there, and it has earned the reputation as a hidden gem.
- The track is designed as a figure of 8, and it has elevated bridges,
separate areas for different level - beginners
- Parents can rest assured that there is a wide variety of areas perfectly suited
for different skill levels
- Additionally, since you can easily rent bicycles at the park, there is no need to worry
about bringing your own
- If cycling around the park was not enough, there is also a children’s playground
nearby to let your kids burn off excess energy
